Dipsey Doodle Socks ...
So many responded to my Dipsey Doodle Fetzenmuster-sock! Thanks for all the wonderfull comments. All this attention can really go to my head! But it sure feels good to read & hear all those nice compliments on what I love doing the most .... stitching ... knitting.
Now these are my last pictures and you don't have to comment. I just felt I needed to put up clearer pictures of my lovely orange feet. I used my better camera and if Blogger will let me, I'll post them now.
Then I'm off for a weekend of visiting with the new baby, Jayden to give her the Pinwheel sweater and Kate I knit for her. Teach my granddaughter, Samantha how to knit. And also teach knitting to her brother Cody, if he's there and not off working (he's age 8 & doesn't work much, lol) with his step-daddy.
Oh, I should give you some details on the yarn I used. I was putting it off because ....
well because it's the cheapest sock yarn I could find. I got it back when I learned to knit socks and the main reason I bought it was because of the COLOR ... it was orange. And the answer is always orange! So here it is: BERNAT Sox Nouveau, 60% Acrylic 40% Nylon/Plyamide. That's right ... couldn't have cost me more than $6.00 for 2 balls of it. But I can't remember. They don't have as much give as wool does, but they're comfortable and I was able to wear them even in 90 degree weather with sandles [sandles that need socks to keep them cutting into my feet, lol].
[They sure look different off my feet don't they?]
So now it's off to a beautiful weekend ...
And of course, I'll be knitting more socks!
